My first Nissan..

Post by La Niña » 10 Sep 2018 17:49

After looking around for a while i finally bought my first Nissan and so happy with her, my only problem is that she's such a pleasure to drive that i want to drive her every day but the fuel economy is going to bankrupt me!

Congratulations :blonde: , Ja fuel economy is unfortunate but a GU is definitely lekker to drive.

Nice looking vehicle there.

Fuel economy is not great, but the smile when you drive is well worth it.

Welcome to the forum.
May the road be long.. and dirty.

I always reason that my Patrol was bought cash, so I don't have a R6k to R8k per month installment on a fancy new Ranger or Hilux. That's quite a bit of Petrol for my thirsty 4.8. And, my insurance is also quite a bit less as the Patrol is low risk, so that bit of money can take me around the block a few times.

Happy travels!

Don, nice looking car!!
I bought my "new" and first Patrol in the Cape, without seeing it myself in December 2016. Frans checked it out for me (I think squeezed me in!) before the long trip home.

I still smile everytime I drive it! :biggrin:

Enjoy!!!
